Ahhhh….finally!!! 42° and short sleeve weather has arrived here in Maine. If you are not from Maine you may not understand such jubilation. But to us Mainers the arrival of our 5th season is always cause for celebration. Days above freezing ushers in early Spring and all that comes with it.
The Sun was out. The sky was blue. Maple sap was flowing. Car windows were open, music was blaring. People strolled by in sweat shirts and tee shirts. Hats and gloves were no where to be seen. Winter coats were replaced with hoodies. Snow boots were replaced with mud boots. And that brings us to the crux of what early spring ushers in here in Maine. Mud! Glorious, wonderful, fabulous mud! Mud season is Maine’s 5th season, and it arrived today with all it’s muddy glory.
Slippery, brown, sloshy mud. “Mud, mud, I love mud!” sang many a Maine child but rarely a Maine adult. Get out the boards for the walkways and driveways. Get out the mud boots for early Spring. Mud Season, has arrived to Maine!
